Pearl Jam recruited an extra guitar for their cover of Neil Young‘s “Rockin’ in the Free World” during their headlining performance at Portugal’s NOS Alive festival over the weekend, and that guitar belonged to one Jack White.
The ex-White Stripes frontman, who also played NOS Alive, joined Eddie Vedder and company onstage for the set-closing cover, which turned into a seven-minute jam session. You can watch fan-shot footage of the collaboration now on YouTube.
White and Vedder previously worked together on a new seven-inch single featuring the PJ leader’s Chicago Cubs song “All the Way,” which was pressed by White’s Third Man Records and released exclusively at a Cubs game earlier this month. Pearl Jam also performed at Third Man’s Nashville headquarters in 2016.
In related news, a piece of Jack White memorabilia is now in the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York. Back in May, White played a show in Cooperstown, and before the concert, he and his crew played a baseball game against a local team. To commemorate the rain-soaked match, the Baseball Hall of Fame has inducted a bat White used, manufactured by his Warstic company, into its historic museum.
